The key technologies we observed not installed properly at CPA firms this year include: surge protection and UPS, cabling, multiple monitors, backup systems, firewalls, and security systems.


These technologies are all fairly well established, and the rules and understanding of how to deploy most of these technologies have been consistent for over ten years. More recent changes in how to setup firewalls and security with greater protection would be the exception to this statement. So please listen to my first point of this month’s article: check your existing technologies to make sure that they have been installed properly. Every firm we have been to in 2007 has these problems. We were so shocked by this trend of improper implementation; we have actually created a series of articles on how to do these basics properly.

We suspect your firm has these issues and others as well, but in this article, we are only going to address the key issues of technologies for your auditors.
